Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb", for on gardening. One of the basic tools that every gardener has to have is a watering can. You now in the old days they were old galvanized clunky things that you'd carry around and they weighed a ton. Today most of the watering cans are made from plastic, and it's good. They'll last for a good long time, they're colorful, and they're functional, they're useful. Often I use a watering can probably, almost every day. I like to use a water soluble plant food in my watering container, and I like to give my little botanical buddies a little drink, and I also like to make sure they're getting some nutrients. The watering cans is easy to apply. It's got an easy applicator, you can simply make sure that you put it on just like rain drops at the end, or you can take this off if you wish, and you can put it on like a little stream of water. The watering can is a simple device that we've had forever in the watering devices, but it's one that's really important if you're going to be applying any type of nutrients to your garden as well. Watering can should be one of your first tools in the garden. For On Garden, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb".
